Banana Bay Marina

The first (alphabetical order) of three Costa Rica marinas we’ll highlight in Golfito, Banana Bay Marina unfolds at the edge of tropical rainforest, in a natural, deep draft gulf that promises superb natural protection from the Pacific’s swells (and Mother Nature’s temper). The marina serves the Southern Pacific coast of the country, for yacht crews based from Sierpe south to Panama.

Situated within the picturesque Golfo Dulce (Sweet Golf) and the pristine Golfito Bay, Banana Bay Marina is Costa Rica’s southernmost government-licensed marina, meaning it can both offer cruising permits and serve as your official point of entry/exit to Costa Rica – an advantage, when arriving from points south. Customer procedures, inclusive!

Rooted in high standards and personalized service, Banana Bay is one of the smaller marinas to make our list: The marina delivers 20 wet slips, dry slips, and monthly docking, as well as a full-service sportfishing center, boat repaironsite hotel, and a restaurant, among other services and amenities.
